मियां कविताएं-2

असम में रहने वाले बंगलाभाषी मुसलमानों को मियां कहा जाता है। यह उनके लिए एक अपमानजनक संबोधन है। इस समुदाय के लोगों को लंबे समय से सामाजिक तिरस्कार और हिंसा का शिकार होना पड़ा है। इसके प्रतिरोध में मियां कविता का दौर शुरू हुआ जिसे सोशल मीडिया ने लोगों के सामने लाया। इन कविताओं में गहरी संवेदना और संघर्ष की चेतना दिखाई देती है। मैंने कुछ मियां कविताओं का अंग्रेजी से अनुवाद किया है जो तीन किश्तों में ब्लॉग पर डाल रहा हूं। पेश है इस किश्त की दूसरी कड़ी।

मियां कविताएं-1

Muslims of Bengali origins are called Miya in Assam. These people have been at the receiving end of violence and exclusion. They have suffered violence and social discrimination over. long period of time. It gave rise to a protest literature, especially poetry called Miah Poetry. In recent times, after the NRC process got under way, the issues confronting this section of Assamese society became even sharper. A new breed of hard hitting poetry emerged which was popularised by the Social Media. The poems bring out the deep anguish and alienation of Miyas of Assam. The political element of resistance poetry however does not in any way diminish its poetic aesthetics. Translation of Miyah poetry into Hindi has been done in a series of three blogs. Here is the first of the series.

The Truth ( A Maithili Poem by Baidyanath Mishra ‘Yatri’/ Nagarjun)

Baba Nagarjun is counted among the greatest poets of modern India. He wrote in Maithili, Hindi and Bangla. His original name was Baidyanath Mishra to which he added 'Yatri'. This poem is a searing indictment of the orthodox religious mindset which privileges the other world over what is real, this world. The poet says, 'the Shruti is false, so is Smriti, false are the Puranas and the sacred books, fasting and penance are false, false is the history of the kings and the rulers.' It is a long but powerful poem. Perhaps he would have been lynched if he wrote today! That is why his poems need to be read in as many languages as possible. Here is the English Translation of his Maithili poem Param Satya
